When we find ourselves in a position where we are more fortunate than others, sometimes it is easy to lose sight of our foundations and humility. However, it is always important not to take advantage of our own good fortune. Instead, we should use our wealth and influence to do some good in the world around us. Whether this comes through donating to charity or helping the homeless, there are many things that you can do to ensure you stay humble.
Be Humble Day, on the 22nd February, is the perfect reminder of this. It allows the opportunity for you to get back to your roots and focus on humbling yourself. Of course, you should always admire your talents and be proud of your successes, but the purpose of the day is choosing not to brag about them overtly.
This can be harder than you may think, as many of us are used to celebrating our abilities and achievements. However, the concept of Be Humble Day is simple – to rediscover our humility and transfer this across to our daily lives. It isn’t always an easy task, but merely keeping humbleness in mind throughout the day can go a long way towards making us think about the way we are living our lives.
Instead of focusing on our own achievements and successes, take some time to focus on those of the people around you. Encourage friends, family and loved ones to do well and celebrate their achievements by giving them that all-important confidence boost.
It isn’t just those who are close to you who can be influenced by Be Humble Day either, as people in your local community and across the world can also benefit. Spending some time giving back to your community or donating to charity is the ideal way to share the benefits of your own good fortune. Helping the homeless or elderly in your local area is the perfect way to even out the balance and do some good for those in need.
Opportunities for humility and maintaining a humble approach to life pass us by every day, but it is this day that encourages us to take hold of these opportunities and make sure that we are using them to their full potential. Be Humble Day provides us with the much-needed inspiration and motivation to make a difference and consciously commit to bettering ourselves and the lives of the people around us.
